Richard's River Camp

About Richard's River Camp

River Camp is one of two camps known as Richard’s Camps, owned by Richard and Liz and was initially established as their home away from home. Richard Roberts is one of our Natural World Heroes thanks to his fantastic conservation work in the Mara.

Perfectly located within 70 acres of private land, right on the banks of the Njageteck River, its location within the Mara North Conservancy offers total exclusivity and, with a permanent water source, excellent wildlife sightings year round.

Well known for its resident lions, there have been incredible sightings right by the camp of them hunting, and falling asleep to the sounds of lions is most certainly a wonderful experience. The tents themselves have a fantastic, casual yet luxurious feel and each is uniquely furnished with bits and bobs collected by Liz on her travels.

You will be made to feel just as special as your surroundings with an outstanding intimacy and great personal service.

Lodge Details

Style

An exclusive and luxurious camp with just 7 tents for an intimate experience.

Setting

In the Mara North Conservancy on the banks of the Njageteck River, the camp is located within the Masai Mara within 70 acres of private land.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 7 tents are atop a raised platform and are appointed with stunning furnishings sourced by Liz on her travels. Beds (twin or double) are very comfortable and the amenities are modern ensuring maximum comfort during your stay. All of the tents have en-suite bathrooms with a flush toilet and a shower and thanks to a silent solar power system, there is power supplied to the tents 24 hours a day.

In the main area you will find the wonderfully furnished lounge area with stunning views out to the surrounding bush.

This is a warm and welcoming camp, ideal for anyone travelling alone, with a family, on a honeymoon or even as a larger group that would like the entire camp to themselves.

Dining

Often you will enjoy your meals outside by candle light and the cuisine is delicious. Despite the remote location, chefs can cater to any specific requirements (notice required) and have extensive culinary experience.

Activities

The activities here are pretty special; enjoy day and night game drives, bush walks and birding, as well as cultural visits to a local Masai village and meals out in the bush. For something even more special, you can pay a bit more for scenic flights (with Richard as your pilot!), hot air ballooning or a day trip to Lake Victoria.
